        You shouldn't cut and paste snippets which lose their meaning.  The
original paragraph said that many people who use Emacs use it to
program.  For most professional programmers learning LISP should not be
hard at all.  For people who have never done any programming or taken
computer science courses, I can understand how it might cause problems.

        Of course, sometimes one gets stuck in a rut or paradigm and forgets
how to leave.  This should not be confused with difficulty programming
in it, but trouble adapting to new habits.
